My cousin Louise came over today so we could show each other our cosplay. For those of you who don't know, cosplay is short for "costume play", and it is when people dress up as their favorite character, usually to attend a convention, but sometimes just for fun! Louise and I hope to go to our local Comic Con this fall, and we've been working on our costumes together for months.
I'm dresssed as my interpretation of a warrior princess named Arya from a popular series of fantasy books that I sneak into my Dad's office to read because my Mom says it's "too mature" for me. Hehe! I have a wooden practice sword that goes with my costume. My Dad has taught be some cool moves with it!
Louise is dressed as a student from Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series. Her house is Slytherin, and she even has a cool wand and cloak!
"Expecto patronum!" she shouted, waving her wand.
We had a long discussion about which of our characters would win in a battle, and then proceeded to enact said battle.
I think I won, but Louise thinks she won! Sigh.
